Sierra Madre Criminal Lawyers

Being charged with a crime is a serious matter. In this day of computerized record keeping and extensive background search tools, even a minor youthful indiscretion can cause a person to have difficulty obtaining a job, renting an apartment or otherwise living a normal life for years to come. In addition, criminal penalties have become stiffer over the years, meaning that people charged with a crime are more likely to spend time in jail than those convicted of similar crimes in years past. This is especially true for repeat offenders. For all of these reasons, a person who is charged with a crime needs to obtain competent legal representation in order to receive a vigorous defense against the criminal charges.

If a person is wrongly accused of a crime, he or she should obviously fight the charges to prove his or her innocence. However, even those who are guilty can benefit from the services of a competent attorney. At times, criminal charges can be dropped against a person, even if he or she is guilty of committing the crime. For example, evidence of the crime could have been improperly collected, causing the court to throw out the case. In addition, an experience attorney can often negotiate a plea bargain to lessen the criminal charges or criminal penalty in a case. For example, an attorney may be able to negotiate a guilty plea to a lesser crime in return for probation instead of jail time. Even if the charges cannot be dropped or a deal reached, an attorney from Farar & Lewis LLP can still help a defendant by providing a competent legal defense in court.
